P/R side chat thread, v. I am not a number I am a free man
« on: July 18, 2012, 11:08:59 AM »
Do we really need a P/R side chat thread?  I'm not sure.  But sometimes, people just want to post shorter, more chatty political or religion based topics that don't really have their own thread.  And people seem to like to use it, so...

Thanks for posting so that I know it actually works.  I was beginning to wonder if I might have screwed something up and not realized it.  :lol

Hey, can you confirm for me real quick that I didn't accidentally make you all mods without realizing it?  I seem to recall a similar debacle in the past.

You want me to poke you in the eyes?

Okay, sorry.  Serious face. 

Out of curiosity, on what grounds might someone be denied permission for posting here?  I understand that's your discretion, but I'm just wondering.  Is it just an issue of whether or not a member has broken the rules, or might someone be kept out because their opinions tend to irk people and their topics tend to get out of hand?

I'm not going to keep people out just because they have whacky views/opinions.  But if they have a posting style that, because of the way they express those views/opinions, they frequently cause trouble, they will be denied access.  There are lots of good reasons for keeping the P/R forum, but the tone of this forum has not been in line with the tone of the forusm at large, and that needs to change.  Rather than delete the P/R forum, we're just going to exercise greater control over who has and who keeps access.

EDIT:  Or what lonestar said.

Seeing posts from people who've been granted access isn't all that interesting.  It's the people who were denied access that we all want to know about.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Thanks for access.




Alsooooooooooo,

Not sure if this needs a new thread, but I'll start the conversation here.

Daniel Tosh's rape joke:

http://breakfastcookie.tumblr.com/post/26879625651/so-a-girl-walks-into-a-comedy-club

So that's the girls account of the story

http://www.buzzfeed.com/amyodell/comedy-club-owner-says-daniel-tosh-incident-has-be

That's the club owner's recounting of the story


I feel, if you're at a comedy club, you better be ready for anything. Especially if you interrupt a guy during his set.

I've a question: say someone posts something in a very polemical and confrontational/harsh tone (such as "Lol, but we all know the bible was created by a bunch of illiterate and dumb nomads and goat-herders in the Bronze Age to trick other stupid people" or perhaps "Wow. Natural Law?! What the hell does that even mean? I can't even take you seriously anymore," etc, etc) would it be appropriate to fight fire with fire, as it were, and correct or respond to such a post in a polemical manner? Should such a post be ignored? Notify the mods?

Thanks

Report it and do NOT respond in kind.  Because if you do, and we find that that posts warrants action, yours likely will warrant the same action if its tone or content is similar.

You can call him Bibi. And he will respond like he always does (and has already responded) with "BLAME IRAN !"

While it might be true that Iran is behind this, it wouldn't matter as he responds to everything with a statement on Iran, that's a how a fear mongering ruler works.

I'm not from Bulgaria, I'm from Israel. Israelis were the ones attacked. Not Bulgarians.

So, you think he probably won't counter with violence? (I seriously hope he doesn't)

No, he can't really. He won't attack Iran (just like they won't attack us.....us being Israel) and he can't attack anyone else cause no one knows for sure who's behind it. I mean, he's kind of the devil so he might respond with bombing Gaza, but I hope he's not THAT retarded.
